Wat Doi Suthep Temple and White Meo Hilltribe Village Half-Day Tour from Chiang Mai

This half-day tour takes you up into the mountains of the Doi Suthep Pui National Park.

A relaxing drive takes you up the slopes of Doi Suthep Peak to visit the most sacred temple in the north, Wat Phra Thad Doi Suthep, containing a holy relic of Lord Buddha. On a clear day the panoramic views of the city from the temple ground are truly spectacular!

Great trip, enjoyed the sights and the guide was superb! The drive was excellent, including the open air transport up into the hills! And the coffee stop on the way back down was fantastic, with amazing views. The temple is incredible and definitely well worth a visit. Good value!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Great half day tour, guide was friendly and informative. Visit to the tribe was interesting however the temple was absolutely breathtaking ... Must see when in Chiang Mai.

As we just were two persons, we in fact had a private tour with our guide Aoi an the driver. Aoi does a very sympathetic job by giving a lot of personal, social and cultural background information on what we are seeing. Wat Doi Suthep is just overwhelming! The hilltribe village can be seen as a hardly visible impression about what life here may have been in former times, covered now by thick layers of tourism. But then people here have to make a living out of their possibilities...

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2013

The temple is a must but the tribe was pointless. Took ages to get there and there was no one around. We ended up on a private tour and our guide was ok but as part of another trip we saw the Karen tribe. This was better.

The guide and driver were very pleasant and we did have a good day. There were only the two of us and we were looked after very well.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2012

Tour Guide Alex 10/10. Driver 10/10.Disappointed that the Meo Hilltribe included so little...We hoped to view the village and their way of life. It was quiet with little activity. The temple was beautiful and the history interesting. Would recommend pairing the Temple with another activity.
